The zantac is working.  I also realized something else.  In prayer I would give my situation to God, and then take it back as tho I couldnt/wouldnt let God help me.  I would worry and fret over it until it was making sick.  I talked to a friend of mine last nite who believes in God as I do and she told me right then and there what I was doing.  So, I came home, prayed and left it with God.  Got up this morining, prayed again, left it with God, and Ive only thought about my situation once or twice, realized it right away, and backed off.  It is in God's court.  My stomach and body as a whole is MUCH better tonite.  O Prasie God!!   Grin

Sometimes it takes a while to truly learn how to "let go and let God"--to really leave it with Him.  It's all an exercise in faith.   Smiley

                                     EXPERIMENT IS DONE!!!!! Grin Grin


Finally!  I can begin to do something else.  Final words.

Measured last nite.  No gain as I have been doing a lot of cutting.  Beginnning measurement on 4/1 was 41 inches. last nite 9/29, measured at 40 1/2 inches.  My ends are now thick and healthy.  I think that is the best part of the whole thing.  Hardly any taper.  The general body of hair is in much better condition.  I also s & d yesterday and those results were great.  I cut off 1 knot, 4 splits, and 17 split wannabes.  I counted all of that.  Much much improvement overall.

Now, after reading/lurking on another board, I might try the monistat experiment and see what happens.  Some reported good growth ratio, and others reported lessened shedding, and others also reported itchy scalp cleared.  Others reported headaches.  So, if I were to do this I am hoping for the growth of course but a general overall clearing up of my scalp. I would also have to keep in mind, I am prone to migaraines.   Medications, shampoos, and such have not helped, some were to expensive to continue.  So I will see where this takes me.  I will post in my journal for all to see  Wink.

My plan would be:  Monistat 7 mixed with either 1/2 warm water and castor oil or Africa's Best Herbal Oil.
Apply around hairline, scalp all over, and itchy place 3x weekly (nite b4 wash) oil ends.  Try for a month and measure/record results.  If results are good, then continue, if not then quit.

So on we grow!!

Hi, Debr.  I have issues with an itchy scalp.  I've been doing regular acv rinses and that has helped over all however my itching intensified in the last couple of months.  I recently started using a Neem shampoo, conditioner and oil that I got from the health food store and in just a few weeks (washing 2 times a week) I am really seeing results.  My scalp is very clear, practically no flakes of dry skin and hardly any itching.

I think the Neem (its a plant from India) would be much better for you than Monostat, unless you have yeast on your scalp.  I must tell you though, it has a strong odor.  I don't mind it at all, but I thought I should mention it.  I think it smells like french's fried onions.  Yum.

At any rate, it is really working for me and in addition-my hair is suuuuper soft and shiney using this stuff.

Hi Sakina, thanks for the Neem tip.  I might just go and purchase some this weekend.  Should I still continue to ACV after using it?

Hi Sakina, I bought the Neem oil yesterday.  I put it in my ends and length last nite and again this morning before I put it up.  Man, is my hair soft!!  Grin.  It does lay a lot smoother tonight.  I am gonna put the oil on the itchy part of my scalp in the morning and see if it helps with the itching, and do the ends/length again.  I have not purchased the shampoo/conditioner yet.  If the oil works as well as I want it to, i I may not have to buy the other. I am considering adding the oil to the shampoo/condish I already have and not buy anymore products which will end up on the bathroom floor (my storage area).

I have also noticed that just using it these last two times how smooth and flat my hair lays.  Yes, the smell can be a bit overwhelming, but what the hey, if it works.  Thanks again for the tip.   Wink

I went to visit my dad on Sunday and he couldnt remember who I was.  He asked me my name.  he also kept referring to my mom as "the other woman"  My parents have been divorced for about 30 years.  His current wife is caring for him in their home as their finances will not allow him to be placed in foster care.  It is sad that this is happening to my dad.  He just turned 79 at the end of Sept   Cry.  I wish I could fix it.  I know I cant but it hard to watch this happen.

I am also sorry about your dad.

My grandma was that way in her late 80's and 90's and it is was very hard to see her that way even though I never did get real close to her.
It was hard for me to visit her in the nursing home because she was in there and also the other people living there.

I'm so sorry about your dad.  I'm certain that his illness and his not being able to recall who you are has to be tough. (((hugs)))

Yea, my dad and I used to be real close  Cry.  Sometimes,  I feel lost without him.  It is hard to ask him about stuff I need to know, cuz he doesnt know or remember.  I am gonna see him every sunday until I cant anymore.
